Linear spectral unmixing is a popular tool in remotely sensed hyperspectral data interpretation. It aims at estimating the fractional abundances of pure spectral signatures (also called endmembers) in each mixed pixel collected by an imaging spectrometer. In many situations, the identification of endmember signatures in the original data set may be(More)
—Spectral unmixing aims at estimating the fractional abundances of pure spectral signatures (also called endmembers) in each mixed pixel collected by a remote sensing hyperspectral imaging instrument. In recent work, the linear spectral unmixing problem has been approached in semisupervised fashion as a sparse regression one, under the assumption that the(More)
—Spectral mixture analysis provides an efficient mechanism for the interpretation and classification of remotely sensed multidimensional imagery. It aims to identify a set of reference signatures (also known as endmembers) that can be used to model the reflectance spectrum at each pixel of the original image. Thus, the modeling is carried out as a linear(More)
—Linear spectral unmixing is a commonly accepted approach to mixed-pixel classification in hyperspectral imagery. This approach involves two steps. First, to find spectrally unique signatures of pure ground components, usually known as endmembers, and, second, to express mixed pixels as linear combinations of endmember materials. Over the past years,(More)
—This paper introduces a new supervised segmen-tation algorithm for remotely sensed hyperspectral image data which integrates the spectral and spatial information in a Bayesian framework. A multinomial logistic regression (MLR) algorithm is first used to learn the posterior probability distributions from the spectral information, using a subspace projection(More)
—This paper introduces a new supervised Bayesian approach to hyperspectral image segmentation with active learning, which consists of two main steps. First, we use a multinomial logistic regression (MLR) model to learn the class posterior probability distributions. This is done by using a recently introduced logistic regression via splitting and augmented(More)
—Sparse unmixing has been recently introduced in hy-perspectral imaging as a framework to characterize mixed pixels. It assumes that the observed image signatures can be expressed in the form of linear combinations of a number of pure spectral signatures known in advance (e.g., spectra collected on the ground by a field spectroradiometer). Unmixing then(More)
—Automated extraction of spectral endmembers is a crucial task in hyperspectral data analysis. In most cases, the computational complexity of endmember extraction algorithms is very high, in particular, for very high-dimensional datasets. However, the intrinsic properties of available techniques are amenable to the design of parallel implementations. In(More)
—This paper presents a new semisupervised segmen-tation algorithm, suited to high-dimensional data, of which remotely sensed hyperspectral image data sets are an example. The algorithm implements two main steps: 1) semisupervised learning of the posterior class distributions followed by 2) segmentation, which infers an image of class labels from a posterior(More)
—Endmember extraction is the process of selecting a collection of pure signature spectra of the materials present in a remotely sensed hyperspectral scene. These pure signatures are then used to decompose the scene into abundance fractions by means of a spectral unmixing algorithm. Most techniques available in the endmember extraction literature rely on(More)
